One feature this would need is a profile limiter parameter, if it isn't added or planned to be added already. In other words, it would be ideal if it had a setting that limited the amount of AI profiles that can be active at a given time, that way players spreading out across the map spawning units everywhere is done in a more controlled manner, reducing chances of lag spikes and frame stuttering.

I think he means like ALiVE system has a "maximum number of profiles" that controls how many can be spawned into game at any one time. This way if you have it on a dedicated server with 40 players, for instance, and the players are moving all over different parts of the map, it keeps the maximum number of AI down to a reasonable number. Else you might have 40 players x 10 man insurgent squads = 400 AI on the map all at the same time. If you set "maximum number" (groups or individual units or whatever) down to say 100 units then 40 players x 10 man insurgent squads = 400 100 max.

I'm assuming this module is dedi compatible?

Suscribing to your newsletter :p

Also in addition to a spawn limiter one of the 'problems' with some Insurgency missions is that players flying overhead will cause enemies to spawn.. not sure if this is something you have considered.

I haven't tried this out yet as I am not home, but I'm wondering.. Is it possible to set the module down to place all the caches but not have it spawn enemies?

a couple of errors in the RPT file from the latest build

Conflicting addon X39_GM_Insurgency in 'x39_xlib_modules\', previous definition in 'x39_gm_insurgency\'Warning Message: Addon 'X39_GM_Insurgency' requires addon 'X39_ActionUi_Scripting'

The second is a warning on startup.

If I run with @XActionUI I get no error. - Armaholic nor here show any sign of required addon, thought you might like to know.

Looking forward to the future with this one.... thanks.

Yep youre right

Sorry for this ( stupid mistake by me : / will be fixed in next version as the module is not requiring XActionUI ( plain c&p of config files can lead into problems)

Alright So I want to get my Unit to test this but something is going on with the insurgency module. I can get the Opfor Units to despawn on load up but when i get in the distance to make them spawn they do not. Am I suppose to Sync the units to the Module or the module to the units or does it not matter and does it work with maps in A3MP? or do I have to stick with Arma 3 Maps. Im not using All in Arma as well, just the A3MP also, does it work with Addon Units or do I have to use the Default units that came with the game. As well I am using Single Player to test at the moment I don't have anything in Headless client section what am I suppose to put there? Your Wiki didn't give much information about this I did everything step by step from the wiki and the Info given by the module and it seams to not work. I really want my Unit to start using this so any awsner on how to fix this would be most appreciated and good system by the way.

Thanks

usually you can leave everything to default (there is nearly no information about this module because its not finished :F)

the module works for ALL maps (but not all are map config files contain the size of a map meaning that you need to move into the topright edge and enter the larger number into the first field if youre using for example zargabat)

that the units are not spawning correctly in the current release is already known (and partly fixed in dev build but there are still glitches ...)

as soon as the module is finished

the documentation will be up as well ^^

so stay tuned

Alright, yea I think that was it I wasn't Running Dev Build. My Unit will switch to the most up to date version once it is release. But thanks for the Hard work and quick reply.

I like the insurgency module, but I keep wondering: why do we have to choose both the enemy faction ánd sync units to the module? why cant we just sync units to the module? I was trying to get PMC units to spawn as enemies but unless the units are from the same faction as selected in the module you'll get the error 'no units synced'

& will you add support for multiple 'avoid' modules at some point?

you already can place multiple avoid modules (just dont forget to synch them)

there was a reason why you needed to put the enemies side into this module ^^

with this i try to prevent DAU users to synch units from different factions with the module as the groups are created on the side you provide here

will also release an update of XLib today which finally fixes the module (already created the wiki entries for both modules: X39_GM_Insurgency_fnc_module_X39_GM_Insurgency, X39_GM_Insurgency_fnc_module_X39_GM_Insurgency_Avoid and now i saw that those pages i created are for the functions of the modules + i already created two smaller pages for both: X39_GM_Insurgency_Module, X39_GM_Insurgency_Avoid_Module -.-* me stupid)

now also got the page for the GarbageCollector module up:

I am confused.. Does this module not create the caches for people to destroy but only spawn enemies?

I keep getting the 'no unit synced' error (100% there's units synced) & it seems that once your going away from a grid, it doesn't become red again. nor do new grids you enter at that point become orange.

Could be because im in editor preview mode?
